cold front

simple question - when the cold front moves over the country and out to sea - does it just disappear into thin air or does it go on and affect the smaller islands like mauritius, etc

Re: cold front

Well cold fronts move along the entire planet in a belt,getting directed via the jet stream.But they do weaken and dissipate at some stage.The same way they intensify.But as for places like Mauritius I'd assume that they (the cold fronts) are usually at too low of a latitude for it to affect them.And I'd assume that Mauritius is in a tropical climate where their rain is mainly brought by tropical troughs and such.But some fronts that hit South American make it across and impact south africa
